Contributions to society:
Aryabhata contributed to the society a lot. His biggest contribution was the zero. Without him discovering zero, we would not have been able to do any equations or math problems. Without zero, the number system would be incomplete and we would not be able to calculate anything including y-intercepts and any x values in an equation. Aryabhata also created many formaulas in which people can figure out areas of shapes and the cosine of a triangle. His work influenced other mathematicians to make other formulas. His work on algebra, trigonometry and astronomy is still used today in everyday life.
